CFN – Has a County employee gone above and beyond to give you excellent service? The United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry is pleased to announce their new Staff Recognition Awards initiative – and is looking for nominations from both staff and the public.
Recognizing those that go “Above the Crowd”, the County Staff Recognition Awards provide an opportunity for County employees to be recognized for any actions or undertakings that are above and beyond the expectations of their regular job responsibilities.
“We sometimes receive letters and emails telling us about the good work that our employees are doing in the community”, said Counties CAO Tim Simpson. “Our staff also recognize the achievements of their co-workers and colleagues. These awards give us the opportunity to recognize these employees for their dedication and leadership”.
Three new awards will be handed out on an annual basis: the Customer Service Excellence award, the Safety Smart award, and the Innovation, Sustainability and Leadership award.
Employees who are a recipient of a County Staff Recognition Award will be recognized at the June 17th County Council meeting. County staff who have achieved specified years of service or are retiring in 2013 will also be recognized at this time.
To nominate a County employee for an award, the public is asked to fill out a nomination form, available online at www.sdgcounties.ca. Further details on these awards can also be found on the County website. The deadline for submissions is Friday, May 24th, 2013.
